Commemorating a new partnership, thanking a colleague for a business referral, receiving exceptional medical care – these are all great reasons to give a beautiful gift basket. Here at GiftTree we particularly love wine gift baskets – it’s so much more than just a gift, it’s a whole experience. When your recipient spreads out everything in their wine gift basket, sees the great wine and the perfect pairings, they’ll be so excited to taste it all. And best of all, you are the one who gets the recognition! Your great taste and generosity will stand out and be remembered. With all that being said, let’s have a look at GiftTree’s 10 best wine gift baskets to give as gifts – onward!
Wine Baskets Under $100
Wine Tasting and Chocolatier’s Selection. “Berry-rich” is the word I think of to describe this basket – a milk chocolate tablet with real bits of raspberry, chocolate balsamic strawberries and Koppers’ chocolate-covered cherries are just some of the decadent confections. They’re paired with an aromatic Chardonnay and a beautifully lush Cellar Master’s California red blend. Ships to every eligible state, including New York and Illinois!
Country Estate. A full-bodied red blend and a golden Chardonnay are paired with gourmet sweets and savory snacks like Ghirardelli sea salt chocolate, Camembert cheese and roasted sea salt almonds, creating an idyllic countryside picnic no matter where the celebration may be. Ships to every eligible state, including New York and Illinois!
The Finer Things. Velvety Cabernet along with bold, old-vine Zinfandel are the pillars of character that set the standard for this basket. They’re paired with gourmet savories and sweets to create a happy celebration at any address, including 5th Avenue. Ships to every eligible state, including New York and Illinois!
Wine Baskets Under $200
Napa Valley Wine Tasting Hamper. Layered with ripe red fruit, Etude Pinot Noir, with Stags’ Leap, a Napa Chardonnay with enticing aromas of honeysuckle and red apple, and arranged in a luxe picnic hamper with Napa’s most delicious artisan chocolates and snacks.
Vintner’s Select Wine Pairing. California’s Russian River Valley is home to Martin Craig Luminist, a boutique Chardonnay masterfully made in collaboration with winemaker Glenn Hugo.
